Laura Mercier - Kohl Eye Pencil in Black Gold


Laura Mercier - Kohl Eye Pencil in Black Gold

This was one of the 100 point perk samples that I got from Sephora, when I purchased goodies from them during the FF sale. The size is pretty tiny, but enough to give an idea as how the product is, how it works and all the good and bad stuff...


Laura Mercier - Kohl Eye Pencil in Black Gold

To begin with, this retails for $19 which is pretty much in the same range as other High end eye pencils. On application, its not as soft as Stila kajal or MAC Smolder, but is pretty smooth. Its bit stiff. Its somewhat similar to the Urban Decay 24/7 pencils (in smoothness). The color is described as Black with Gold pearl by the website, but i find it is more of Antique Gold color, with green hues in it, very much like the MAC Henna eyeshadow. It has some sheen to it and non of that 'sheen' travelled over my face.

This glides on easily, without pulling or tugging and lasting power is pretty good. On my waterline, it didn't last that long...just 4 hours..

As eyeliner on lash lines it was just verrry beautiful and GORGEOUS!!!! Its very true to color. I also tried it over black base...smudged a bit....and it was simply Awesome....Personally, I like the color a lot...So even if the texture is a bit on stiff side, i would still purchase the full size...The only drawback is that, it needs to be sharpened...which I am not very fond of....
